The program you're writing -- what is it supposed to do?  Perhaps we can
help out better if we knew what you're trying to do.


PS: Historical note -- The "C++ style comments" actually came from BCPL,
which is a precedessor to B, which is a predecessor to C.  So it's
actually "BCPL style comments" :)
